CTA South Branch Red Line Shutdown: Haven't We Been Here Before?

This south branch red line shutdown seems to be going well.

At least according to all of the media reports I've been reading.

I received an email from a reader in response to my red line shutdown tweets. Here's what he had to say:

My eyebrows immediately shot up.

I replied back:

Eagled eyed @cooj999 sent me a link to a series of Tribune articles detailing the elimination of slow zones on the CTA blue line from the Addison Station to O'Hare.

Naturally, my interest was piqued, so I sat down and looked at the facts of both lines' slow zone elimination project. I wanted to compare apples to apples so to speak.

The results were quite interesting.
